Lincoln University Concert Choir Shines During Governor Rendell’s Inaugural Events; 30-Plus Member Choir a Big Hit

LINCOLN UNIVERSITY, PA---Pictured here with the Lincoln University Concert Choir is new Pennsylvania Governor Edward G. Rendell (D-Pa.) and his wife, Judge Marjorie O. Rendell (center), at the Governor’s Mansion in Harrisburg, Pa. Dr. William Garcia, professor of Music and chair of the University’s Department of Visual and Performing Arts (left of Gov. Rendell), directed the Lincoln Concert Choir as they performed the song, “Pennsylvania,” as visitors toured the mansion during the Governor’s open house event on January 22.

The Lincoln Concert Choir appeared at the special invitation of Governor Rendell. The choir also performed on inaugural night, January 21, as part of the Governor’s “Taste of Pennsylvania” event at the State Farm Arena.

Founded in 1854 as America’s first Historically Black University, Lincoln University combines the best elements of a liberal arts and sciences-based undergraduate core curriculum and selected graduate programs to meet the needs of students living in a highly technological and global society.

The University is nationally recognized as a major producer of African Americans with undergraduate degrees in the physical sciences (biology, chemistry and physics); computer and information sciences; and biological and life sciences. In addition, Lincoln is ranked first in Pennsylvania in the same categories.

From April 2003 through May 2004, the University will celebrate its sesquicentennial, or 150th anniversary, with an array of campus and external events, activities and announcements. For more information about Lincoln University, please visit us on the web at
